Spitty, I can't get pics here but if that's one of those .450s, I've always wanted to shoot one. Never see them around here. I have a Martini in .222mag that I love...

seem pics of them. Not replirifles. The real McCoys. A buddy of myne brought some back from the sandbox and they were neat ol' rifles.. Would talk him out of one if I could come up with any ammo. Walleyworld was out. :rotflol: :rotflol:
